This gelateria is hard to find. It took us over an hour to find it since the area was in construction. I am glad that we did not give up. The gelato is very creamy, tasty and delicious. Their pistachios, mango, coco and tiramisu are the best. We did come back for the 2nd time within one hour. PS: the... More

What a chance that I found this paradise accidentally. Located not in the center of Milano and maybe that’s why is so good! Anyway it’s not so far and you can reach by walking, absolutely worth it! Clean lines and colors outside and once you enter every color, every taste is sinful! Wonderful variety of flavors that will not disappoint... More

If you like to be refused your order because granita doesn't go in a cone, or be overcharged for ice cream that doesn't beat its neighbours, you'll love it here!

A gelateria, yes, but a well oiled machine! Some nice summer days you can walk on heads just to have your favorite icecream! And believe me, it is worth waiting.

I generally don't like chocolate ice cream, but the chocolate gelato here is to die for! Mostly really good quality dark chocolate. About nine varieties. My favorite is Fiji, with orange bits. Now, there is many other flavors, both fruity and nutty, like Pistacchio and Cocco, also in the must try category. So creamy, flavorful and, definately, not overtly sweet.... More
